Billed as “a visual journey through five decades of the BBC’s most popular family drama”, Marcus Hearn’s new book, Doctor Who: The Vault, promises to pack a lot of time and space into it’s 320 pages.
Drawing on unseen and iconic material from the BBC archive and private collectors, The Vault is an unforgettable journey through 50 years of Doctor Who, via carefully selected photographs, props, costumes designs, production memos, letters, scripts and more.
…says the book’s Amazon description. Technically spanning even more than Who’s five decades, Hearn’s book will have images and items from before the show debuted in 1963 to as-current-as-possible filming and behind-the-scenes with the Eleventh Doctor.
The Vault is a collector’s dream and the ultimate celebration of Doctor Who.
Well, a Who fan can’t get much better than that!
The handsome big blue book will also have interviews with “key contributors” to the show through the years…and features a Foreword written by the biggest current contributor of them all, Steven “The Grand Moff” Moffat.
Now on sale at Amazon UK, and with an RRP of £30, The Vault can currently be pre-ordered for less than £20! It’ll officially be available on October 24th, leaving almost a month to read it cover-to-cover before the big anniversary. Owning Marcus Hearn’s Doctor Who: The Vault would be like owning your own copy of the Second Doctor’s 500-Year Diary and River Song’s TARDIS-shaped diary all rolled in to one!
